Five people were held for driving under the influence on Sunday, in the Port of Spain division, during a breathalyser police exercise.
According to police reports, the five persons are between the ages of 30 and 65 years, and include a judicial records officer and a furniture store manager,
The police exercise took place between 8.30 pm on Sunday and 1 am on Monday, along Wrightson Road and the Lady Young Road in Morvant, simultaneously.
The exercise was co-ordinated by Senior Superintendent Ramdeen, Superintendent Rampath, Superintendent Simon and ASP Sooker.
The Ministry of Works and Transport says the Lady Young Road, Morvant will be temporarily closed tomorrow from 9 am to 3 pm, and again from 7 pm Tuesday to 5 am on Wednesday 7th March, 2018, for further slope stabilization works.
The road was reopened this morning to vehicular traffic after being closed over the weekend.
The road was cut off by a landslide last Thursday and the ministry has been working to ensure that there are no further land slips since then.
Motorists can officially return to the Lady Young Road route today, as the green light has been given for its reopening by the Ministry of Works and Transport.
The major roadway, which crosses the foothills of the Northern Range, became impassable last week after two landslides made impassable and dangerous to traverse. The road was officially closed off to vehicular traffic as work crew cleared away debris and ensured it was safe before giving the all clear for vehicles to return.
The Lady Young Road will remain closed today to facilitate the clearance of debris by the Ministry of Works and Transport in order to be reopened to the public tomorrow. This was announced by Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan yesterday.
Motorists were able to drive from the Morvant Junction up the Lady Young where they had to make a detour down Maryland Hill. The Lookout was used as a staging area for the heavy earth moving equipment and trucks to remove the falling debris and rubble.
Motorists are advised that a landslide along the Lady Young Road is causing traffic to back up around the Queens Park Savannah.
Motorists are advised to use alternative routes at this time.
The Regional Corporations, Ministry of Works and Transport, Fire Service and Police Service are on the scene at this time.
